We visited 3 Bears after a long, cold and snowy day in Yellowstone. The servers seemed overwhelmed and kept apologizing as the service was very slow. The food was delicious and plentiful. But it would have been nice to have someone in management acknowledge the long wait (approx 25 min after we were seated before we ordered). We were too... More

I strongly recommend Three Bear Restaurant. Tonight was our third dinner in West Yellowstone and the food was definitely the best. They had a nice salad bar and all of the portions were large. I had the salad bar and chicken fettuccine. Unlike most restaurants the chicken was a nicely seasoned breast and the fettuccine had plenty of sauce. Too... More

The chicken soup is the best I've had . Customer service was good . Our waiter was friendly and attentive. I would definitely go back for the chicken soup!

Nice restaurant with rough and local look. Friendly staff, but the food was average. Largest restaurant in town.

The food was good, very generous with the french fries, but the prices were a little high like anything near Yellowstone park. The service was also good. I would go there again if I was in town.

This was our 2nd visit to three bears. First time was few years ago during peak season, this time was off season. Food was not as good off season. The service was great, Michelle took excellent care of us. We're willing to try a 3rd time.

I had dinner here. I was seated promptly but it took too long to get a server. I had one come to my table but then tell me he was in the wrong place and I waited some more. Another person came by shortly after and took my order she was pleasant and that was the only time I saw... More

Listen, we got a meal and it's not like we were angry, but things could have been better. Two out of the four meals were good. Some times it's the little things that add up... My fish tasted good but was not hot, my daughters chicken was dry, the soup was missing at the soup station until we asked them... More

Pot roast was ok. Kids meals looked like TV dinners. Fettuccine alfredo was overpriced and bland ($17 for noodles and sauce, no chicken). Wife got the fish and chips. Fish was cold so they microwaved it which made it nasty. Waitress apologized and took 20% off the fish ( not the whole meal). She even said it looked " unappetizing... More

This would be an okay place to come back to, but not a place I'd make a point of going to. Salad bar was not a good idea. Burgers were okay.
